    It was okay.

    The first book "Conspiracy in Kiev" was great. However, the second book of this trilogy didn't get interesting until the very end. There was too much information about the history of the spanish war and other events and not enough intriguing dialogue.

    A Great Read!

    This was one of my first downloads for my Nook and it was a fabulous read. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series. Characters were well developed and the plot was complex enough to keep my attention.

    If you're a fan of books like The DaVinci Code, then you'll probably like this one too.

    This is a new author for me; I look forward to reading more from Noel Hynd.

    Where less is more

    There are a few pros to this book. The plot was fairly interesting, following an American secret agent in Europe trying to uncover the mystery behind the disappearance of an unusual piece of art. The author has a wonderful knack for description. The violence and death scenes were probably comparable to a Quentin Tarantino-directed film in many ways, enough to make you wince a little but still keep you hooked.

    On the other hand, I felt that the book really dragged. Too much description in too many areas. And the plot didn't really get moving until it was near the end. What really got me was that the protagonist is on her computer more half the time and the reader is forced to follow along. I kept thinking that there are probably better ways to drop clues about the mystery or look into the historical background than revealing it through email! Furthermore, I found several abrupt parts to the story that add very little to the reader's comprehension of the characters or the plot. An in-depth theological conversation, for instance, pops out of nowhere and then, doesn't get weaved back into the rest of the story. I guess I would have preferred it if the plot had moved along sooner and the author had skipped out on writing about Alex's emails.

    Thrilling but Violent

    Incredibly written, but I had trouble reading it and finishing it due to the graphic detail of several murders. Very violent in places. I also wished for more Christian content and thought that the publisher would have required that.

    Midnight in Madrid

    I found this a very well-written, interesting and thrilling novel. I liked the female heroine very much and found her both likeable and believable. She was bright and very capable. Her adventures were quite exciting and kept you on the edge of your seat. Whenever I had to put it down, I couldn't wait to pick it back up again. I also liked the settings and the places her adventures took her. All-in-all, an excellent read.

    Another James Bond writer in the making

    The first page of this book grabbed hold and I couldn't put down my nook until I was done reading it. Every part of the story made me feel as if I were watching this book as a movie. Between the history of the land and the circumstances of the situation, the author did a wonderful job folding that into a perfect plot. When I was done reading it, I felt that it was a book that may have told a true story somehow, somewhere..just too real.
